Musician Michael Franti, frontman for folk funksters Spearhead, was so troubled by the Iraq war that he went to the Middle East to experience the conflict firsthand. Staying outside the American-controlled Green Zone, he "would just start playing music on a street corner, or walk down the street and play music for people. People would be drawn to it, and I was the first American they'd ever met that wasn't carrying an M-16." We talk to him about how he turned his experience into a new CD, entitl...

Mother Jones contributor Robert Dreyfuss argues that the Bush administration's conflict with Iran has little to do with nukes, and a lot to do with empire-building. "You have to wonder why the Middle East is always the center of so much attention when it's such a big world out there. It *might* have something to do with the fact that two-thirds of the world's oil comes from the Persian Gulf." Next, Rolling Stone contributing editor Tim Dickinson says that Bush's support of an anti-gay marriage a...
